Carbquik Baby CORN FRITTERS

When I was growing up we'd pass this little hole in the wall joint on the way to the lake to visit family. It was the one and only place in New Jersey that I ever encountered corn fritters! Not the pancake kind, but the deep fried almost donutty decadence that had me hooked immediately. Served with powdered sugar and butter, with maple syrup, or plain- they were my own personal food nirvana! Throw in a glass of sweet tea and I was in heaven!

Those days long gone, the restaurant no longer in existence, and even the THOUGHT of the original carb count would put me out of ketosis! But, oh, how I have been craving those crunchy little gems.

Well, lo and behold I found a recipe for Bisquick corn fritters. Hmmmm, I had Carbquik. And I had a can of baby corn from the Asian market. What did I have to lose?

While not the same as my beloved old high carb variety, these are VERY good and they come in at less than a carb a fritter (if my math is right, the entire recipe comes in at just about 11 net carbs)! I'm thinking in summer I may even add the kernels of one ear of fresh corn to get the distinctive crunch I remember. But, for now, these will do quite nicely! I had 6 for breakfast with some lc pancake syrup. I have 12 left for tomorrow night to use instead of hush puppies for my shrimp dinner. I could do a happy dance!

1 cup Carbquik
1 Egg
1/4 Cup Milk (I used almond milk, and I added a splash of heavy cream because the CQ seemed to suck up the moisture more than Bisquick)
1 Can Baby Corn (mine was from an Asian market, and had 4 net carbs for the entire can)- rinse the corn and coarsely chop in a bullet or by hand.

Mix everything until you have a nice batter. At this point, I sprinkled in a bit of gluc powder, not sure it needed it, but I wanted that extra bit of texture.

Optional: Sweetener (1 used a few drops liquid splenda), ground cayenne, salt (I lightly salted mine after frying).

Preheat about 2 inches of oil in a frying pan. Use 2 teaspoons to drop fritters into the oil. Fry until golden on one side, flip and do the same. Drain on paper towels. If salting, do so while still hot, as the salt will adhere better. Enjoy!

Blessings on this recipe. As daughter of deep south mother,
we had corn everything including fritters. I just posted a recipe for
avocado 'corn' soup utilizing the baby corn. We must have both
really had a craving for corn. Thanks so very much. I shall make
them to go with tonight's soup/salad dinner.

We have been having soup/salad meals and work on them every morning.
DH wants me to lay low since my fall and let my injuries heal. So no
real lengthy cooking. The fritters were delicious with our broccoli cheese
soup and our kale salad. this is how I feel about them.
